Story Cove - stories from around the world arranged under the names of the continents. You can open up the "story book" in your browser and let it playback the story for you. You can plan an animated version and teachers can find related lesson plans.
Storyline Online is a great, free website where famous people do read-alouds! I have used this to "tame the chaos" at the end of the school day. Kids love listening to the stories, and it gives the teacher time to get all of that "end of the day" stuff done!
